A solid build for any who enjoys melee combat, truly fit the theme of a forminable fighter. Self sustained is so high while you are fighting, not much focus is needed because as long as you hit something you can heal up to full even below 50%. One more small benefit that if using Phalanx Strength this build practically immortal in zerg/massive meta while still provide extremely high might up time. The only downside is this build has limited CC unless you willing to give up some personal dps for mace/hammer/physical utilities.

As of 2021, this build is still an excellent solo build. Able to solo champions with relative ease thanks to the sustained healing from sun and moon and might makes right. "Shake it off" alone functions as a very good condi removal option and stunbreak. And full counter is a third dodge. Its only real weakness is its relatively short range, which is somewhat mitigated with its gap closing skills, namely GS 3, GS 5, dagger 2, and dagger burst. Overall, 5/5

The best solo build for warrior. Very versatile, relatively easy to play, and can quickly be adapted to fit different playstyle. Has gone from a build I rarely took seriously to one of my favorites very quickly.

A tanky, high AoE damage build for Spellbreaker. Excels at soloing group events and cleaving down trash mobs, and can survive some things it shouldn't be able to with Full Counter. Like all Warrior builds, its weakness is its short effective range.

Screaming gave this build 5 stars July 2018

A great build that fulfils classic warrior wielding a big sword fantasy, with not only great personal sustain and damage mitigation through Might Makes Right and Full Counter, but also extremely effective at generating its own might further increasing its damage between Forceful Greatsword and Magebane Tether.

Alongside this it also has decent condition cleanse with Mending and Brawler's Recovery, as well as good mobility on Greatsword with Whirlwind Attack and Rush which are further enhanced by Warrior's Sprint removing immobile.

This build, overall, is absolutely excellent, while being fun to play - between Mace and Shield skills, Hundred Blades, and Physical skills, it's easy to get the feeling that your warrior is this extremely strong unstoppable juggernaut.
